White tea refers to the tender shoots and buds of the Camellia sinensis plant that have been slightly oxidized and lightly processed. That's what they try to market to you, as justification for charging higher prices.

White tea is actually green tea. Yes, oh you fancy huh, drinking white tea like thas wassup. No, it's just green tea - more tender leaves, yes, but still a green tea. Does it taste better? That's up to your judgement, you tea-baggers.
